Banksy Talks About The Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill


From Banksy:

“New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets.  So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals.  If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art.”
